Why You Should Start Wearing Adapted Insoles
To move about, we need to stand on our feet, meaning they endure a lot when providing the necessary support for our daily walk, standing, or engaging in various activities.
However, our feet do get tired, which is normal. We also should consider relieving our feet the same way we do other body parts. They also deserve to enjoy some TLC (tender, love, and care), and this is not only when resting. Your feet should feel comfortable when running, standing, or walking. That is why you should invest in quality insoles. At SIDAS Sports Orthopedics Center, we consider such insoles essential in foot care.
Have you heard about adapted insoles, or perhaps you already wear some? If this is a new term to you, read on to discover why you need them. People have different feet and engage in various activities, and that is why various insoles are made to suit such demands.
Our in-house podiatrist expands more on adapted insoles and their benefits.
1). Who Are Adapted Insoles For?
Most shoes are sold with insoles made in the standard format, which might not be suitable for some feet types. However, adapted insoles are the answer to feeling comfortable when on your feet in everyday life situations.
2). How Do I Know If I Need Insoles In My Shoes?
Your foot will not unwind properly when walking or running if it is not well adjusted in the shoe. This causes it to feel tired or ache. Inserting adapted insoles helps transfer your foot’s support to the shoe for a comfier fit. The insoles are designed to offer two primary things:
- Improved comfort when wearing shoes
- Address a specific point of discomfort. (We recommend seeing a professional, podiatrist, or a doctor-recommended specialist if you feel excessive pain when wearing shoes)
It is best to ensure your shoes’ cushioning and reinforcements are sufficient and adapted to your feet type, Strole footwear provide comfort and support whether when engaging in sports, in your leisure walks, or in daily life.
3). What Are The Main Benefits?
Insoles adapted to your feet and activity provide long-term and short-term benefits.
Firstly, the insoles are molded to suit our feet, supporting the foot’s arch needs and providing impressive comfort. The insoles also offer adequate cushioning to relieve our feet during physical activity, preventing muscle and joint pain. The joints in your feet can suffer when functioning in the wrong position due to the shoes and their insoles you are wearing.
- The long-term benefit of using adapted insoles is better recovery and proper joint and muscle function since they are less solicited.
- The short-term benefit is more targeted comfort and support for more protection and less fatigue.
4). Do We Need Different Insoles For Sport And Everyday Use?
Your feet will feel tired if the insoles provide insufficient cushioning and support. Therefore, inserting insoles that offer better comfort can improve the situation. Each insole model is uniquely molded to a person’s feet to suit their different everyday life and sport needs.
- Insoles suited for city use have a thin cushioning gel layer, are low maintenance, and support foot hygiene.
- Insoles for running provide exceptional flexibility, lightness, cushioning, and vitality.
- Insoles suited for hiking offer sufficient cushioning, protection, and foot support.
- Insoles for winter sports have exceptional heat and cold insulation, providing traversable protection and stability and low maintenance.
5). Which Insoles To Choose Based On My Foot And Activity?
Since people have different types of feet, their expectations and needs for each activity vary. Our insoles are designed to meet each requirement. At SIDAS, we shall help you select the correct insole that ensures your feet feel comfortable in your shoes.
We offer flat soles, 3Feet semi-custom soles, 3D soles, and 100% custom insoles, made to suit your activity, whether walking, running, cycling, skiing, and other daily uses.
We have specialists in our shops who are trained and equipped to analyze people’s feet and advise them on what suits their needs. They will orient you to the ideal product to buy adapted to your activity. They will examine your feet and recommend which insoles to get.
6). How Long Do I Have To Keep Them?
We cannot give any lifespan for the insoles because we do not know the distances you will cover in them and how frequently you use the insoles. However, we can give an average no different from using two pairs of shoes. The insoles will show some signs of wear on the coating under the metatarsals. The insoles are not a lifeline for your damaged shoes.
It is best to remove the insoles from the shoes after every use to dry and air, preferably in an open environment; this will help prolong the insoles’ life.
7). Should I Wear Them Every Time?
You most likely will not want to change to something else after you experience the fantastic support and comfort our adapted insoles provide. Moreover, you might not want to walk or run without them. The top reasons for wanting to wear the insoles continuously are:
- Optimizing the shoe’s properties
- Stabilizing the feet
- Improving body alignment when standing, walking, or running
- Promoting natural cushioning (support)
- Minimizing foot fatigue
- Indisputable comfort
